Gian Luca Favetto's Se dico radici dico storie (Contromano) (Italian Edition) PDF

By Gian Luca Favetto

Le vite sono fatte di storie più che di atomi e ciascuno ha le sue, ciascuno è le sue storie. Le diventa. Quando si cube radici, si cube storie.«Uno coltiva il suo giardino di cose memorie pensieri dubbi curiosità e se lo porta dietro, sempre dietro anche il più metropolitano degli uomini , dietro e dentro. Lo porta in viaggio con sé. È il suo zaino, los angeles sua valigia. Lì custodisce le proprie radici. Ogni tanto le bagna. Ogni tanto le fa respirare. Fa loro vedere il mondo. Le adopera come polpastrelli. È con le radici che incontri il mondo, con ciò che le radici producono.»Favetto racconta radici che si diramano nello spazio e nel pace: nascono da un torrente, da un campo di calcio, da una pagina scritta, da uno schermo cinematografico. Partono dal Vietnam e ci portano in una valle piemontese, a Venezia, a Benares, a Madrid, in Giappone.
